Switched to a tank of Shell 95 to see whether my fuel economy changes. Notice more sluggishness in first and second gear. After 1/4 tank gone usage is 11 l/100k.
Personal experience gives BP Ultimate the best economy and smoothest engine revs.
Once I do the sums I'll probably revert to BP Ultimate exclusively. Wish BP would discount more.
I refuse to go to Shell as they add on 18 cents on top of the board price (the unleaded 91). BP only add 14 cents - therefore Coles is expecting you to have the extra 4 cents off docket - which I don't always have anyway.
Check it out next time, but here in Melbourne thats what happens.
